Children’s Short Story Contest: Coming Soon!


With the help of some gracious volunteers, we have decided to run another short story contest. (It’s be a couple of years!).

The rules, timeline & prizes will be posted soon.  The genre will definitely be fantasy, open to anyone between the ages of 8 to 16 (broken up into age groups).  This contest will be FREE to enter.

Bookmark and check back often for updates –  info will be posted by October 15th.


To answer your questions…

Happy Saturday y’all!

I received a couple of questions regarding the short story contest, so I thought I’d clarify here.

  1.  What is the criteria for judging?   ~ Judges will be basing their scores off of:  Plot/Content, Characterization, Spelling/Grammar and the following of guidelines. Each category is worth five points.
  2. Are there any plot specific guidelines?  ~ Not really. As long as the character is between 8-14 and there is reference of a holiday, you are free to write whatever you want!

If you do have other questions~ please let me know at

Now, get writing 🙂
